Happy Birthday Sierra!

Yes, I am a week late, but Sierra's big 5th Birthday Bash Blog is finally here!! She had such a great day! She pretty much celebrated the whole day! It started out with a party with her friends, and ended with a family celebration. There were lots of cake, lots of balloons, and lots of fun memories!!!

Months ago, when Sierra decided that she *had* to have a party (um, I was leaning more toward NOT having a party, but she had her heart set on it), she told me she wanted Sariah (cousin from Utah) there. Luckily, Sariah has parents that are willing to bring her to Montana from Utah to celebrate Sierra's Birthday with her. The girls LOVED having Sariah around for the weekend!

Grandma Neela also made it to the celebration!
Oh, boy! What kid wouldn't love to have that many balloons?!

Sierra couldn't wait for her friends to show up so the party could begin!

They played Pin The Tail On The Donkey....

and had a pinata!

Maddie was pretty proud of her candy stash after the pinata!

These were Sierra's Ice Cream Cone Cupcakes for the party. They turned out so cute!

Mmm, enjoying the yummy cupcakes!

After her party, we did a little family shin dig. One thing she got was a real digital camera. Oh boy, she really loves taking pictures!

But the best present was saved for last.....


She was so surprised and LOVED her new bike!!!

That evening we went for a bike ride to test it out. I absolutely LOVE this picture!!! It is so sweet! Daddy/Daughter going on a bike ride (BTW, Jake is riding Maddies bike).

Here is Sierra's Birthday Cake! Just so you know.. I did NOT make this cake. My mom was kind enough to take on that task. Thanks mom!!!

So, this cake has a bit of a story to go along with it. Months before her Birthday, Sierra had chosen a Barbie cake for the big celebration. I was so excited because I thought it would be the perfect cake for her! Well, a few weeks before her Birthday, they were celebrating a Birthday at her school. The Birthday Boy brought in a cake to share with his school mates. When Sierra came home from school she was so excited about the Birthday celebration at school. She told me she wanted a cake just like his. So I said "ok.. what it was it..?" Sierra was so excited and said "A SQUARE CAKE!!!" Um... doesn't she know we dont do square cakes at our house? So, we made a compromise.. a square cake with a barbie cake on top. Yes, this was a TON of cake (also, remeber the ice cream cone cupcakes we had earlier?), but I couldn't settle for just a square cake... nope, not at this house!
It was a great day and I know Sierra loved every minute of it!

P.S. I also learned how to ride a dirt bike. It is actually pretty fun!!
